Substituting salvaged materials for new materials saves costs and adds character. Recycled-content materials reuse waste that would otherwise be deposited in landfills. Use of local materials supports the local economy and reduces transportation costs. Use of rapidly renewable materials minimizes natural resource depletion. Use of third party certified wood improves the stewardship of forests and related ecosystems, and reduces Green House Gases.
